This option is used occasionally. The need to use this option arises when some employees are not working up to the mark. Consequently they demote down from their current position for the purpose of punishment.

g. Labor Management Relations:

In Monnoo group of industries unions are not exists. Therefore whenever any conflict exists the admin & HR department deals it directly with the employees. But normally this happens occasionally. As I have described earlier that monnoo group is a well trusted name both for the customers and employees. The owners are very much keen to take note the problems of the employees. In the same way they always try their level best to solve it. The employees feel a self respect while working in group. The working environment is very flexible.

Management feels that employees are very much honest towards group. They are working very hard. They always appreciate the team work.

Whenever any conflict is arises the admin & HR department sit together with the other party which may be a single person or a department. Then management creates a task group to handle that which normally includes persons from Admin & HR department, one person from management. Then this task force meets the other party and asks employees to select some persons to whom they will negotiate. Then this group tries to diagnoses the issue. The nominated persons view the issue and evaluate it according to environment and then suggest some possible solutions. The employees nominated persons are also included in the process and now both the parties try to find a single solution. After this the task group presents their suggestion in written form to the competent authority. At this moment the authority issues instructions after viewing the recommendations from task group. Finally the issue is resolved peacefully.

In Labor management relations the role of admin & HR department is very crucial. They usually try their best to create a win win position. The role of both HR and line manger is very crucial in these cases. The HR manger has a purpose to understand workers need and demands and as well to satisfy employer. Therefore in most cases he fined a middle solution which will acceptable to both of the parties.

The Admin & HR department routinely visits different sites to know about the issues of the employees. By following this strategy they can know about the current issues of the employees. They also create a good relationship with the employees.

Very cheap and high quality products as compared to market

High qualified staff

The group is presently facing over staffed position.

HR department needs to be more effective and there is a lack from management support.

There is a need of management support for the HR department.

16. SWOT Analysis


Excellent Credibility in the market

Monnoo group has a great credibility in the market. The group has a good name in the market for since its beginning. Both the buyers and suppliers are satisfied with group's performance and always show a huge interest to buy products. According to my opinion that's a big strength of the group. Generally speaking trust is considered main thing in any kind of business.

Strong Marketing Team

Groups have developed a strong marketing team. In fact this team is a mixture of experienced hand persons and the young educated employees. That ultimately brings strength for the group.

High Quality Products

Similarly group management is very much conscious about the quality of products. They are never ever compromising on quality of products. Therefore they have hired experts' people who are continuously worked to develop the quality of the products.

Over 65 years of Experience

Group has over 65 years of experience in its field. This is also a big advantage. People trust them and buy their products without any hesitation. They have earned a good name both in textile and sugar sectors.

Huge List of Buyers

A number of buyers are always interested to buy the products from Monnoo group of industries. These buyers are belongs to within the country and outside the country as well.

Healthy Environment

The environment is very good and relaxed. Working hours are very flexible. Employees can share their ideas interpedently. They are warm welcome by the management of the group.

Strong Relations Between Management and Employees

The working relationships are also very good in the group. Management is highly appreciating the good ideas from employees.

Low Cost

Group is continuously producing very low cost products. That's why market accepts groups manufactured products very early. A large number of buyers are always preferred to buy.

Qualified Staff

The staff is also very much experienced and well educated. That's also a big strength of the group.


No advertising and promotion

Group is not so much active in advertising and promotion of their products. They only take business through their reputation in the market. I consider this weakness of the group because nowadays the whole companies are getting customers through advertising campaign.

Weak IT department

There is a lack of modern equipments in IT department. Therefore group is not performing up to the mark.

Lack of Innovation

Group has not yet developed the research and development department. They just apply the old methods to produce new products. Therefore groups is currently suffering lack of innovate products.

Lack of Modern Machinery

The group is currently operating with old machinery. Therefore it pays a great impact on the production.


Incentive from Government

In the future, the group may get some sort of incentives from government. In current scenario the textile sector is facing a lot of problems due to energy crises and lack of facilities from government. Therefore there are strongly chances that government should provide some incentives to the textile sector.

Rapid increase in customer satisfaction

The group's customer's strength is increasing day by day. Customers are very much satisfied. Therefore this can be a best opportunity for the Monnoo group of industries.

Launch products to new areas

Group can introduce products to new areas. These new areas may be national and international markets. By applying this strategy group can surely get a huge profit and market share.


Foreign and Local Competitors

By viewing current scenario textile sector facing a lot of competition from foreign competitors. This is indeed a big theft for Monnoo group as well. They should adopt those strategies which not only enhance their productivity but also increase customer's base.

New Technologies

Technology is changing day by day. The group is still using old methods for production. The competitors are using new technology in their operations at the same time Monnoo group is not adopting new tends. That's why technology could be a threat for the group.

Lowest cost of competitors

The main competitors are producing products with very low or cheap cost especially international competitors. The group should also review the cost cutting methods. So that they can stay in the market.

Political Situation

Political instability in Pakistan is always a big question for the companies. This is also a threat for the Monnoo group of industries.

17. Conclusions:

It was a pleasure working here in Monnoo Group of Industries. The group is considering one of the biggest groups operating in Pakistan. Along this I also had a great experience working in HR department. Monnoo Group of Industries is a well trusted name in Pakistan. Currently group is producing textile and sugar goods on a large scale. Group has a strong market respect for their quality based products. Many international brands are currently working with Monnoo Group of Industries. The group has following a good compensation plan for his employees who are working all over the Pakistan. Management is paying very less attention to upgrade the old machinery. This is very important issue and management should take a brave decision.

Training sessions should be implemented with full devotion. A trained force can produce good results. In some units, the hiring system is not followed properly. Nepotism is very common. Management should take a bold step to eliminate this problem; otherwise in the longer run it may create many problems.

The Group may achieve many opportunities by overcoming their weaknesses. The group also has a big advantage of strengths which including good credibility in the market, strong marketing team, high quality products, over 65 years of experience and huge list of buyers etc. That's why management should try hard to cash these strengths. Hence we can say that overall performance of the group is very fine at the moment.

18. Recommendations:

Group is currently facing an over load situation. So management should introduce schemes e.g. golden hand shack and rightsizing. By implementing this strategy group's can enhance his financial and productive position.

Group should adopt the diversification strategy because nowadays textile sector is decreasing day by day.

Management should develop research department because currently group is suffering lack of innovation.

Group also needs to pay attention on advertising their products. Presently the management is not involved in marketing activities.

Group should formulate the policy which provides focus to appoint outside persons so that group can get advantage of latest technology and trends.

The IT side of the group is also need consideration.

HR department also needs to be more practical. There is a lack of top management support to this department.

The marketing and Sales departments are also not performing according to the requirements. This side also needs some actions from top management.

By following above assumed recommendations the group can get many benefits to run the entire business smoothly.
